We are now learning new information about the medical condition of former Lakers player, Lamar Odom.

Odom was found unresponsive at the Love Ranch South on Tuesday afternoon and was rushed to a nearby hospital before being transferred to Sunrise Hospital in Vegas where he is now in a coma and surrounded by family and friends.

But while it has not been confirmed what led to the athlete’s hospitalization, sources are saying that drugs were found in his system.

An insider tells E! News that doctors are treating Odom’s situation as a drug overdose. The 35-year-old apparently suffered a “ischemic stroke” which is often associated with a cocaine overdose, among other drugs. The source also revealed that there is likely “brain damage” and that “virtually every drug imaginable was found in his system.”

Although the Love Ranch owner, Dennis Hof, explained that there were no illicit drugs found in the player’s room, the insider did reveal to E! that Odom “was doing crack cocaine all weekend and he choked on his mucous.”

Other sources tell TMZ that Odom has a 50/50 chance of survival.

Meghan Markle may have left USA’s Suits after seven seasons, but the actress’ likeness will be making it’s way back to a TV very soon. Lifetime has announced that it’s planning a film based on Markle and her soon to be husband, Prince Harry’s whirlwind romance.

The cable network, known for it’s biopics, made the announcement on Sunday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour.

“And before the wedding of the year takes place between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Lifetime will debut a movie revealing how the stars aligned for this royal romance,” said Lifetime’s head of programming Liz Gateley.

Harry & Meghan: The Royal Love Story  (working title) will trace Prince Harry and Markle’s relationship from the day they met to the overwhelming media attention surrounding their eventual engagement, which was announced in November. It will also touch on their courtship after they were set up by mutual friends and depict Markle’s life as a divorced American actress.

Menhaj Huda, who helmed an episode of E!’s fictional Royal Family series The Royals is on hand to direct. Casting is currently underway.

No official date has been announced, but given Lifetime’s track record, fans should expect the movie to release a few days before the couples May 19 wedding. Back in 2011, Lifetime aired William & Kate: The Movie just days before the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge married on April 29.
